We are pleased to announce that Yudhvir Seetharam has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of the open access South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences (SAJEMS).
About Yudhvir Seetharam
Yudhvir Seetharam is an Associate Professor of Behavioural Finance at the University of the Witwatersrand, School of Economics and Finance. He is also currently the Head of Analytics, Insights and Research for one of South Africa’s large banks. He holds a Ph.D from the University of the Witwatersrand in the field of behavioural finance. Being extensively involved in both practice and academia, Yudhvir regularly engages media on pertinent issues, is part of various societies (including a Governor of the South African Institute of Financial Markets) and has received various awards (namely, the Mail & Guardian 2017 Top 200 Young South Africans list in the Business and Entrepreneurship category; the Top 100 (#59) Most Influential Young South Africans list; and a recipient of the Gauteng Premier’s Youth Service Excellence Award in Economic Development).
Yudhvir’s area of focus is on the application of empirical (analytical) techniques to finance (broadly defined as both investments and corporate finance), with an emphasis on incorporating investor psychology/biases into these techniques. Interest in this field is relatively scarce in South Africa, but there has been growth over the past decade. While this area may seem broad, the underlying theme is on applying inter-disciplinary approaches in solving traditional problems in the financial field. As such, there are neighbouring applications in the field of Financial Technology (such as “big data” and “data science”) and in risk management. He has published extensively in local and international journals, such as the Investment Analysts Journal, International Journal of Emerging Markets, Eurasian Business Review, inter alia.

Journal Focus and Scope
The South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences (SAJEMS) is a leading South African-based publication for interdisciplinary research in the economic and management sciences.

The editorial board therefore invites authors to submit their research from areas such as economics, finance, accounting, human capital, marketing and other related disciplines that break down common intellectual silos and prepares a new path for debate on the operation and development of sustainable markets and organisations as relevant to the broader African context.
